5.0 out of 5 stars It's Darkness will consume you!!!
If you let it. It is very dark which is good if you like it, similar to relapse but in this album there's a little something for everyone. Unlike relapse from Eminem, in this one there is restraint. I don't hate relapse. Anyway, as I was saying in K.O.D. Tech sometimes comes close to crossing those boundaries in (the second part of the album) "Madness" but has a comical...

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed,...
i very rarely bother to write a review, unless i am blown away by something or disappointed with something. unfortunately this is the latter. i've always considered tech n9ne to be one of last great bastions of hip hop music in this bleak, materialistic, egotistical, club inspired era of hip hop we have been slogging through for about 8 years now. though every album has...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tech continues to improve with "K.O.D.",
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)Unlike most artists, Tech N9ne has improved as an artist with every album. I didn't think he could top "Killer," but he definitely proved me wrong with his newest release "K.O.D. (King of Darkness)."
Like the album title suggest, this LP is extremely dark when it comes to his lyrical content (murder, death, depression, etc), more so than any other Tech album. But fans shouldn't be alarmed, as the dark mood is often mixed with incredible production and clever punchlines throughout the album.
I am personally a fan of every song on the album, but standouts include "Show Me A God," "Demons" (feat. Three 6 Mafia), "In The Trunk," "Leave Me Alone" and "Strange Music Box" (feat. Brotha Lynch Hung & Krizz Kaliko).
If I had to pick a flaw, it would be some of the skits. Most of them fit with the album's concept, but the interview with Jason Whitlock doesn't offer anything new that Tech fans wouldn't know, besides a reminder that Tech is often criticized and accused of worshiping the devil. I understood the purpose of it, but I believe it could have been left off.
Despite that, this album is worth purchase for any Tech fan. Once again, Tech has stepped up his craft and created another solid body of work. Listeners looking to hear raw emotion and creativity should buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Album by the King Of Darkness,
This review is from: K.O.D. (MP3 Music)Tech Nine's struggles are brought forth in the album. It speaks of a lot of the pain that Tech has had to deal with in his life.
5.0 out of 5 stars dark, and great,
This review is from: K.O.D. [Explicit] (MP3 Music)You can't go wrong with Tech N9ne. This is a dark album "King Of Darkness" which has some great tracks.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great cd,
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)Cd exactly as described. I am a big tech n9ne fan, love the cd and I listen to it all the time
5.0 out of 5 stars Tech Nine,
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)My husband loves tech 9 CD's and this one was no exception. Tech 9 is great rapper who, in our opinion. should have more playtime and recognition than what he does.
5.0 out of 5 stars Whats not to like?,
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)Its a CD, whats not to like? Arrived quick, bought it forever ago but seems I never left a review. I still listen to it to this day. Though most my music is now on a thumb drive I still have a few CD's in my truck when I am not in the mood to scroll through the thumb drive options.
4.0 out of 5 stars at his darkest,
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)i didnt buy this cd off amazon. this cd is dark! very twisted in a great way. lets you in on the demons in tech n9nes life. tech n9nes king of darkness is not for the weak hearted but goes harder and darker than ever before
5.0 out of 5 stars A new favorite Tech Album?!?,
This review is from: k.o.d. (Audio CD)Yes. I like it that much. I don't care what anyone says about Tech going mainstream. It's B.S. If anything this album is a step in the other direction. I personally feel that Killer and Everready (loved them both) were more mainstream than KOD. Besides, what is wrong with appealing to the masses if you are still being true to yourself and making a quality product? This album makes me feel like I did when I first heard Anghellic (or even "Questions" from the Gang Releated Soundtrack). It's not the same as Anghellic, or any other Tech ambulm for that matter, but that is why I like his music so much. People grow and change and it's cool when their music does a dope-ass job of reflecting that change. Sometimes it doesn't always work for the artist, but Tech has never dropped the ball. It kills me when people bash Tech because his albums don't sound the same. Most people like his music because it is different. I know that I've changed and grown over the past ten years, or so. But hey, I can only speak for myself.
Anyway, if you haven't heard this album by now, what are you waiting for? Listen to the tracks and buy the ones you like. Personally, I prefer to get the autographed hard-copies of Tech's albums from Strange (love the album art on this one).
